BEEF PROCESSING PLANT
Since 2012 we have been operating the beef processing plant of the affiliate agricultural cooperative PD Čečejovce. Our cattle are downed here under constant veterinary supervision. All the three main parts of the plant – the slaughter hall, the cutting room and the chilling room have been completely modernized.
The facilities and machinery of PD Nižný Lánec are being gradually modernized. We are planning to rebuild the young cattle breeding stall and the beef cattle stall.Our Products
